High Court Allows Full Travel Ban

Apple Google Netflix & 94 Other Companies File Brief Against Trump's Muslim Ban Source Twitter

New York Immigration Coalition says ruling unacceptable as it descriminates based on race.

The U.S. Supreme Court has finally allowed the Trump administration to fully enforce Trump's travel ban on people from eight nations from coming to the US.

Lawyers for Hawaii, one of the challengers to the travel bans, said there was no reason for the Supreme Court to back away from the "equitable determination, dutifully adhered to by the court below", that it had already made.

President Donald Trump's decision has been challenged on questions such as his legal authority to issue such an order and whether it constitutes a religious test and a Muslim ban, as promised by Mr. Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. The decision of the SC was supported by seven of the nine judges which increase the chances of the administration winning the case on merit as and when it reaches the highest court. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor would have kept in place partial stays on the order. The court was advised that the countries were put on the watch list only after the administration concluded they lacked the "identity management" systems that would permit US officials to spot would-be travelers who presented a "heightened risk".

"This decision ignores the very real human consequences to American citizens and their families overseas imposed by President Trump 's Muslim Ban 3.0", said CAIR National Litigation Director Lena Masri. They said the new version still discriminates against Muslims in violation of the US Constitution. In response to the tweet, Neal Katyal, attorney for the State of Hawaii Tweeted: "Thanks!" A temporary ban on refugees expired in October. "Almost a year after we rallied at JFK in response to the first Muslim ban, we will continue to fight Mr Trump's plan to turn bigotry into policy and resist this latest assault on our liberties just as we have every day since Mr Trump took office", Mr Choi said.

President Trump met with the Libyan prime minister on December 1 to discuss counter-terrorism efforts. But the Trump administration, which says the ban is crucial to protect United States national security and deter terror attacks, secured strong support from the Supreme Court in a 7-2 vote to let the government move ahead while the appeals continue.

Somalia-Entry into the United States by nationals of Somalia seeking initial admission as immigrants is suspended, and nonimmigrants traveling to the United States will be subject to enhanced screening and vetting requirements "to determine if applicants are connected to terrorist organizations or otherwise pose a threat to the national security or public safety of the United States".

"Now that the Supreme Court has ordered the lifting of restrictions on this ban, minimum security standards for entry into the USA can be enforced".

Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, said that it is unfortunate that the full ban can move forward for now.

The litigation itself doesn't actually address national security concerns, despite claims from officials, Becker noted. "We continue to stand for freedom, equality, and for those who are unfairly being separated from their loved ones", he said.
